It’s National Egg Day, How do You Like Yours? [POLL]
It's National Egg day today, so yep, you guessed it. We are talking about EGGS! How do you like your eggs?
Breakfast just isn't breakfast without eggs. We love our eggs.
Here is some great information about eggs according to Lifehack :
The average American eats 250 eggs per year, which translates to a total annual consumption of 76.5 billion eggs in the U.S.
They also have some great advise on the sell date you see on the cartons.
The next time you buy a carton of eggs, notice that the package comes with a Sell By date rather than an expiration date. Your eggs should be edible for a 3-4 weeks after that date, so don’t toss them in the garbage until then. If you’re not sure an egg is still good, take a big whiff of it after cracking. Your nose will be offended by an unpleasant odor if it is no good.
I've been trying to buy Free Range eggs lately, but what do all those different labels really mean? Here ya go...
Cage-free — These hens are free from the confines of a cage, but this doesn’t mean they are frolicking in an open field with the sun overhead. More often, they are free to roam a barn or warehouse, but their living conditions can vary widely.
Natural — Anyone can use the term “natural” to describe their eggs, so this means nothing.
Free-range — This means hens are free to roam the outdoors at some point, but there is no regulation specifying how long is necessary, so there is no way to know how long the hens are actually outside.
Certified Organic — Hens have some access to the outdoors and are fed an organic vegetarian diet that excludes any pesticides, animal by-products, or genetically modified foods.
